Question: Did the girl’s father agree that Robinson married her?
Then she was ill for one week. She couldn’t come to my house.
I felt a strange feeling when she wasn’t in my house. I really missed her. I thought, “Maybe, I love her.”
One week later she came to my house. I was really happy to see her. I saw that she was happy too. I hugged her. Then I kissed her. It was a long kiss.
Two weeks later I went to her father’s house. I asked him if I could marry his daughter. He was quiet. I waited for his reaction. Then he said, “I agree.” I was the happiest man in the world. Two months later I married the daughter of my friend. We started to plan a family. This period of my life was great.
We had big plans for our family and our plantation. We needed a bigger house. We needed more money for a bigger house. I thought about the business in Africa. I could make a lot of money in Africa quickly. I spoke about Africa with my friends. Some of my friends liked this idea.
